Rancid backpack
The Rancid is the smallest bagaboo backpack – designed for carrying your camelback inside, on those mountain biking or trekking tours. Also suitable for urban rides.


The rancid is the smallest bagaboo backpack – designed for carrying your camelback inside, on those mountain biking or trekking tours. It has a padded back and the similar shoulder straps as our larger backpacks – that means comfort for your shoulders. There is a chest strap for extra stability if you need, and compression straps on the side to carry larger things in the side mesh pockets.

A reflective stripe on the front of the bag and a blinky holder helps you to be visible on the road. With the long, water repellent zipper you can open the bag from the top to the bottom – you can easily put things in and get out.

By default, there is no inner tarpaulin layer in this bag to keep it lightweight – but this also affects its waterproofness. This bag is not waterproof in heavy rain, we call it water repellent. If you need waterproofness and you don’t mind having a heavier bag, you can order the inner waterproof layer as an extra option.

We offer this bag with 2 different outer colour, it looks nice this way, but you can always have one with just one solid colour of course.

There are 2 mesh pockets on the outer sides of the Rancid, and with the compression straps, you can use these mesh pockets to carry long items that would not fit into the bag.
An outer zipper pocket with a hidden zipper can store your smaller items, and there in an inner zipper pocket for the things that needs to be at a safe place.




We use CORDURA® material as the outer layer of our bags. Military clothing and equipment are also made from it. UV-resistant, highly wear-resistant, impregnated material. The inner layer is made of waterproof tarpaulin. The larger bags are lined with a thicker truck tarpaulin, while the smaller ones are lined with a thinner, more wrinkle-resistant, lighter tarpaulin. On the messenger bag, the inner and outer layers are sewn separately, and we only join them together at the turn-off part, so the inner layer 'floats' inside the bag - so rainwater cannot seep in through the seams. The shoulder straps of our bags are made of seat belt webbing. The reflective strips come from 3M, the zippers and velcro are YKK products. Our suppliers of plastic accessories and buckles are Duraflex and YKK. 



There are two mesh pockets on the side of the rancid, which you can adjust with the side fasteners - you can also adjust the size of the bag with these. At the front, there is a zippered, hidden pocket that can be expanded to the outside, there is room for a wallet and keys. In the inner part of the bag, there is a pocket with a zipper from the top, like the flap pocket of one-shoulder bags - this is a well-hidden, safe storage.

Shoulder straps


The back of the rancid is spongy like the larger backpacks, and the shoulder strap is just as comfortably padded - it sits very well on your back. You can also fasten it with a cross strap on the chest, while there are fasteners on the sides to fasten larger packages.

Camelback option.

Optional Extras

Pocket behind the back padding: in addition to the back of the bag, we put a pocket under the sponge that you can open with a zipper from the side of the sponge.

Laptop holder: if you provide the exact dimensions of your laptop, we will make a laptop case for you. This is a case that can also be used separately, can be carried in any bag, and has a round sponge.

Airflow back padding: if you request this extra, in that case, an air-permeable sponge will be placed on the outside of the back of the bag. We make this from a special material that allows your back to breathe even under the bag. This material also dries quickly.

Waist strap: 4 cm wide, removable strap that you can use to attach the bag to your waist.

Inner waterproof lining: tarpaulin lining can be requested as an extra for this bag.
